If you are looking for a classic bread pudding recipe, it doesn’t get anymore old fashioned than this easy gluten free bread pudding recipe. Top it with an incredible vanilla cream sauce and enjoy!
I don’t know about you, but bread pudding has been one of our family’s comfort foods for as long as I can remember. It was made with thick pieces of crusty bread, and then smothered in vanilla cream sauce.
Times have changed and I just don’t have time to make gluten free crusty bread. I have been using a cheat of sorts. I use gluten free bread, but I use a lot of the “ends” to create the bread crumbs for this bread pudding. My kids won’t touch the ends so I save them up in a big bad in our freezer.
We hope you love this old fashioned gluten free Bread Pudding from scratch recipe.
Vanilla Cream Sauce
The star of this recipe is the homemade vanilla cream sauce. This recipe is quick and easy, and adds a whole new sweet vanilla flavor to this easy gluten free bread pudding recipe. There is even a vegan option if you prefer.
This is the ultimate bread pudding sauce, but you can also drizzle this vanilla cream on cake and ice cream too!!
You can freeze this bread pudding if you have leftovers or want to serve this at a later date.
Bread pudding is really easy to make, and it can last in the refrigerator about 4 days. (My family never has dessert leftovers, but that is my best guess!)
Bread Pudding Flavors
As you scan the ingredients, you will realize this is a basic bread pudding recipe. You can most definitely vary the seasonings to make this different. Most commonly people add cinnamon to bread pudding. I have also used cardamom. You can add nuts and raisins, or other dried fruit to your bread pudding too. Can’t you just imagine dried tart cherries? It would be delicious!!
